16-year-old Defends Himself from Hatchet-wielding Relative

There is much in the media/Left about how only people older than 21 should have access to firearms. So what do they think this 16-year-old should have done?

“Yeah, my son defended himself. It could have been the other way around. It could have been my son, I’m the one I’m picking up and having to bury, but it wasn’t.”

The uncle apparently had a history of threatening the family, but even though his threats often included the use of things like machetes, he wasn’t in jail (or the loony bin).

The kid is understandably traumatized. And the case will be presented to a grand jury, but to my untrained, non-lawyer sensibilities, it certainly appears to be justifiable self-defense. Which is a human-right.
